Bargain of the Day: one spoon, slightly soiled

by Feòrag

Today's bargain is the victim of misidentification. Described as spoon with h20 mark shape of a cross/week Pope passed, remarkable claims are made for this strange object:

[A spoon]Normal serving spoon came out of the dishwasher the day Pope John Paul II passed away with a water mark resembling the holy cross.

On Apr-08-05 at 04:05:10 PDT, seller added the following information:

Portions of proceeds will be donated to a Catholic Charity.

Now, to me, that looks more like the Japanese kanji [ketsu], which means hole or cavity. Of course, it could still be read as topical by the desperately pious, as the character forms one half of 墓穴 [boketsu], which means 'grave'. Now, don't go complaining that the Prattle isn't educational!
